In a statement released Monday (Feb. 24), the couple confirmed they are going their separate ways after nearly nine years of marriage.
“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” they said in a joint statement. The pair were last seen together at the Grammy Awards in late January.
In 1991, a then-14-year-old Thicke met Patton and the pair quickly became high school sweethearts.
Thicke and Patton married in June 2005 and share one son, three-year-old Julian Fuego.
